Earlier this week, Ayesha Curry sparked some major online reaction for comments she made during an appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith’s talk show.
On the show, the wife of the NBA star revealed it bothers her when Steph receives attention from women, while she doesn’t feel noticed by members of the opposite sex.
The comments caused a stir on social media, with some criticizing Ayesha for “complaining” she doesn’t receive attention from other men while in a committed marriage. After facing backlash for her comments over the past week, Steph decided to step in and defend Ayesha.
The Warriors star took to Instagram to post a message for his wife:
“Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there – not being afraid of the potential bullsh*t and nonsense that could and did come at you. Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you,” Steph said on Thursday night.
